Julia L. Newton is a Clinical Professor of Ageing and Medicine at the University of Newcastle in the United Kingdom. She has published a number of ME/CFS studies focusing on autonomic nervous system dysfunction[1] and the role of inflammation in fatigue. She is a member of the UK CFS/ME Collaborative and is the Joint Medical Adviser of the charity Action for ME.

She is Director of the Newcastle Fatigue Research Group [2] and Associate Medical Director for Research for Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
